re: Is Robert "uncle Bob" Martin a racist? Or how come people recently call him that? VIEW POST


I'm not sure if he's a racist. I do know that he very recently posted Trump quotes on Twitter. He's been doing this for several years on Facebook. Being Pro-Trump does not make someone a racist, but some of the positions Trump takes are certainly racially charged or in some cases flat out racist.

If he was a racist it wouldn't make his writing and teaching on software less relevant, so my advice to everyone is to read through his publicly posted comments and decide if you're comfortable giving him money before buying cleancode et.al. that doesn't have to be a judgement on someone being a racist, just if they're someone you want to support financially.


Do you have specific quotes?
